♪ >> bill: that is this edition of the factor thanks very much for watching us. i am bill o'reilly remember the spin stops right here, we are definitely looking out for good morning, everywhere, it's saturday, november 24th. i'm a alisyn camerota. thanks so much for joining us today. protests in egyptian as thousands take to the trip angry over morsey's power grab but morsey says it's god's will. >> brawls and gunfire all in the name of bargain shopping. why do emotions run so high on black friday in why don't we ask dr. keith ablow. we will do that ahead. >> he remembered to take his new tv but not his toddler. he wanted a great deal at this k-mart but i'm going to leave
3:01 am
my 2-year-old in the car. >> respect children are dime a dozen. >> tv's at k-mart aren't. "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ ♪ it's small business saturday after black friday. today is the day that we all celebrate and spend a lot of money at small businesses. >> we should. i mean, black friday is all about the big box stores. we had a live shot yesterday from one of the small outdoor malls and there was nobody in sight. no one around, two or three people trickling by. go and help out the local stores in your neighborhood. >> don't bring your gun. that's what happens on black friday. we will get to all the black friday craziness. >> did you shop? >> first of all i avoid black friday like the plague.
3:02 am
that scares me. i also don't bring my gun to parking lots because anything could happen. >> good move. >> don't leave your toddler in a car. we will get to more of that craziness. >> the new protest out of egypt this morning because what started out as some protests in tahrir square has spilled over to other parts of the country. this all comes after thursday's decrees from egyptian president mohammed morsi basically saying you know that judiciary that we have? you know the judges that we have? if i make a decision, they are not going to be able to review anything that i do anymore. essentially cutting out the judiciary becoming by all accounts a dictator. >> yeah. all the checks on his power were essentially removed. and it did appear that this guy became a dick day or two overnight. what was worrisome about it is how quickly it all happened. and basically a 12 to 24 hour span after the united states congratulated mohammed morsi on doing such a great job helping to broker a peace agreement between hamas and israel which may beer maybe
3:03 am
not. maybe he did a great job. there are also arms being smuggled through egypt so maybe he got too much credit. >> he seized the day. his name is on top of all newspapers. here i am, i need to consolidate power this morning. >> charles krauthammer believes there is a connection between the praise that came from the united states and what president morsey has done now in egypt. >> i'm not surprised at all that the brotherhood is now essentially engaging in a cudahy that. the shamelessness and speed in which he did this the day after the agreement. i think the administration has to wonder whether the praise it gave which was fusive and excessive didn't give morsey the sense that he can can strike now because he has been elevated to a great world leader. he had to do the cease-fire because he needs the money and he wouldn't have had it otherwise. and also because egypt has never wanted to be dragged back into the palestine wars
3:04 am
by the palestinians who want everybody to die on their behalf. >> he then went out and spoke to large crowds saying that i am the president of all egyptians. he says though that the reason he did these decrees, what's behind all of this, he says, look, there are members of the mubarak regime, remember that regime you guys through out during the arab spring that i don't want trying to get power in my new government. and they are out there. they are lurking. that's why i put these new decrees in place to protect you from mubarak. >> right. these new decrees by the way. he is saying basically there is nothing the judiciary can do to overturny decisions that he makes. he has given himself unchecked power. the expression that absolute power corrupts absolutely. he now is what the demonstrators that you see there that he has become a totalitarian dictator. that's exactly what they had voted against in the first freely elected president,
3:05 am
morsey was. and now he, they believe, has become no different than mubarak. >> yesterday, the former assistant secretary of defense spoke out on what's happening there. >> president obama is really stuck now. that is is, he wants to court morsey but now that morsey is acting extra illegally, he he is almost forcing president obama to have to rebuke him publicly. and the question is whether president obama will do. so. >> >> we probably should have been quicker to reserve the praise. susan rice was the first one who spoke out immediately praising mohammed morsey. to charles krauthammer's point, it's the money that we hold power in all of this over a billion dollars a year goes to egypt. maybe that's something that the united states holds on to. s and congressman that want to defund egypt entirely. that money probably ought to be held back. >> they're the people once
3:06 am
again making their demands. can you see from the videos here. >> looks like the arab spring, right? >> remember what happened in to your knowledge and spilled into egypt. this all started here and people got their wish and mubarak was forced to step down. >> that's the dahlia they know. that's what everybody said. power vacuum and mother brother hood step in. here was his reaction to protesters. he said god's will. protesters have made me the captain of this ship. >> unbelievable. that's the update out of egypt this morning. we have much more on that. including great expert on the middle east this, no. talk about what's going on not only in israel and gaza but also egypt coming up in the show. >> get to your headlines and tell you what else is happening at this hour. a smell of gas downtown springfield, massachusetts. explosion through the area. 18 people were hurt. among them, firefighters, police officers, and gas workers responding to the calls for a gas leak.
3:07 am
amazingly, no one was killed. it felt like a bomb had gone off. >> and blew me right out of the bed. it blew my back bedroom and my kitchen window were completely blown out and blew me across the room. i got up on the car and we ran out of the house. >> investigators will be back on the scene today to determine if any more buildings need to be torn down. well, despite their best efforts. black friday protesters did not seem to hurt wal-mart sales. [chanting] >> a thousand protests were expected across the country. according to statement released by wal-mart only 26 protests actually took place and most of the participants were not even esm employees they say. they say it was the best black friday ever. sold 1.8 million towels. 1.3 million televisions. 1.3 million dolls.

at the end of it we made through the entire thing scot-free. it's cold. 13 degrees in minneapolis. the tenks have dropped off from where you were on wednesday. aside from that, no big storms. cold front eastern seaboard. behind it a ton of sunshine. there will be a little bit of a problem around the great lakes. that cold air will continue to move across the great lakes which have still pretty warm. out across the west, warm moisture continuing to pull. in it's now moving in across interior sections, idaho and iowa seeing some of the snow. snowfall totals we will see from lake-effect snow are not going to be all that high. maybe 4 inches jamestown, new york. in essence maybe 3 to 6 inches. not all that bad. but it could cause a little bit of problems on the road. here are your temps for the day today. you see the cold air around the great lakes and northeast. warming up across parts of the high plains. second batch of cold air begins to move in towards the

northern plains. foresystem bring another batch of snow across the northern plains. aside from that, looking really good. everybody is going to be able to get home just fine. >> yesterday i tweelted this. i said this guy is the moron of the day. see if you agree with me. he goes in late night and tries to get a black friday deal on a television. 1:30 in the morning in massachusetts. he takes his girlfriend's to the ler with him. 2-year-old. to the store. i'm not sure why and he decides manchts maybe he was baby-sitting. >> this is a great babysitter. he goes into the k-mart to get a deep discount on a 51-inch television and he leaves the kid in the car. >> right. then the police are notified that there is a 2-year-old sleeping in a car, who is unidentified. so they take the 2-year-old that they can't wake up to the hospital. the guy goes home with the 51-inch tv and then i guess realizes at some point either in the store or on his way home that he forgot the child. >> so the child was in the car. >> right.
3:12 am
>> asleep. >> that's right. >> to so people. >> they removed him while he was in the store. >> the babysitter was in the store. >> he didn't realize -- >> he comes out with a tv he is like i have got this tv i'm going home. oh, where is that kid i brought with me. >> he was so high on the fumes of a good deal that he forgot that he was baby-sitting. >> maybe he thought it was a swap. maybe he thought it was like i get the 51-inch tv, i give you the 47-inch child. [ laughter ] it's not funny. it's horrible. >> took him to the hospital because, you know, he was a kid at 1:30 in the morning. what kid is audible, verbal at that hour. >> he we're happy to report the child is fine. but we do need to hear a bit more of an explanation from the. >> he is being charged. >> reckless enendangerment of a child. >> keith ablow will be on.

3:16 am
>> welcome back, the ever
3:17 am
evolving story from the administration about what happened in benghazi is becoming more confusing by the day especially in ambassador rice speaking out. james clapper saying he is the one who took out al qaeda talking points after originally saying he had no idea who did it. so who should we all believe here? joining us now is former cia covert operations officer mike baker live in boise idaho at 3:15 a.m. good to see you, mike. >> thank you. good to see you and thank you for the opportunity. >> what do we make of all of this after what susan rice has come out and said? she clearly relayed the intel given to her. should we expect a diplomat to do more than that. to go beyond and ask questions before relay ago story to the media. >> well, right. not just a diplomat but the person that president obama claims would be a perfect secretary of state to replace secretary clinton.
3:18 am
ambassador rice is stying five days after the attack. now it's three mons on from the attack and we are still kind of around with the potential investigation. getting people in to testify. but ambassador rice is saying five days after the attack all she did, at the behest of the white house was go on the sunday morning talk show circuit and rely entirely on the intelligence talking points which is, again, it just adds to these continuing layers of a narrative. if we are to expect that the u.n. ambassador, potentially the future secretary of state didn't have access and wasn't involved in discussions five days on from the attacks talking about the scenario of the terrorists the fact that there was no protest she talked about sunday morning show, then we have a serious problem. >> the picture in your head is she is handed a packet of paper. she reads it over, says thank you and goes and delivers it to the media. is that how it works?
3:19 am
there is some sort of briefing, it's more than papers there is a discussion about what happened in which someone that is going to be the secretary of state should ask questions. correct? >> right. absolutely much the idea that somehow, you know, she slipped one page briefing memo with some talking points that by the way have been edited constantly apparently since the cia produced the basic intelligence, the raw intelligence from the field talking about what had been happening, it doesn't add up. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it's not as if now ambassador rice has decided well, you know, i had to come out and defend my comments. this is a planned move by the white house, i believe, because, you know, they want to put her out there as the secretary of state. i think they are feeling fairly emboldened after the election and just intend to jam this joyce through despite the congress and republicans in congress saying now we are going to block. this i think what they are doing is setting the table for ambassador rice's nomination. >> in fact, they may have blown it up.
3:20 am
why didn't they put someone out there, in your opinion, like clapper who actually had all the intel, probably talked with a lot of the intelligence officers in addition to the state department instead of someone like rice that clearly was more relaying information she was told second hand? i think essentially she was willing to get out there for the white house, be the front pointy edge of the spear. be the sewage and now she is being rewarded for carrying their water. it's a good question. obviously clapper has his own issues right now in terms of how were the talking points edited from what general petraeus had testified. it's a big mess isn't it home of the smurf turf in boise idaho. good to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> up next they were left in the dark for weeks after super storm sandy hit. why did the long island power authority just bill its customers as if the outages never happened? kids, don't try all of this.

3:27 am
band-aid on a problem and not really a solution. >> the i think the announcement of small business saturday is important. what we don't want to do is can that can ba bliz sales for the rest of the year. our small business customers we have over 100,000 customers in our book of business need to make sure they have the best state of the art ecommerce solutions. do business and reach and communicate with businesses a little bit outside of their local region. >> that's so important. let's talk about that. >> i knew you had him there. >> really frustrating. >> i talk about this with my wife a lot because we will, if you need a contractor or need somebody to do something on your house and you want to get some work done, whatever it is in a small business, you might not get a phone call back for a few days. >> the folks though that do call you back that have an answering machine that get back to you and receive and return phone calls or maybe have a web site or a store front where you can go on and do a google search. some of these businesses aren't searchable by google. they haven't thought to go to a google site and make
3:28 am
themselves available. >> what is amazing today small businesses that that don't have a simple web site. for as little as $6 a month you can have a web site with a hosting plan and gateway to take payments. small businesses need to take advantage of the internet and tools to communicate both with clients in their local community and in their region to be able to do the business. today they can effectively compete with big box. >> can they? these massive mega stores are small businesses going the way of the doe doe bird? >> the ones that don't advance and position themselves for the way things are today in the market. they are going to get knocked out. but you look at the wal-mart problem. the wal-mart problem you have got all labor unions pushing in and pushing up the costs. small businesses have to take advantage where they have that capability. we service small businesses we help them manage their healthcare costs, their technology costs. they have got to watch the bottom line and where they disadvantage historically the internet has been a great
3:29 am
equalizer. >> where are small businesses add a disadvantage. >> there are advantages the to the entrepreneurs are close tomorrow employees and customers. that level of customer service is a tremendous advantage. that's what they have to take advantage of. the local. >> personalize it? >> personalized service. the fact that you can go into a small business today and really get taken care of. and you can't get that in a big box store. >> harnessing social media in a local communitiening able to go on facebook and say thanks for coming in today. i really appreciate it. having that personal connection. you don't get that from big box stores. >> if you are in a local community and doing a search. local store is going to show up on iphone or tab bleted. that's something that needs to be taken advantage of. don't have to pay a zillion dollars in key words. just the fact that you have a presence is what is most important. >> we're out of time. one more thing. you mentioned $6 a month people at home are saying how do you make a web site for $6 a month.

>> welcome back, everyone. listen though this creative sentence, 10 years of mandatory church attendance, that was the sentence handed down this week by an oklahoma judge to a 17-year-old convicted of drunk driving and killing his friend who was sitting in the passenger seat. the church sentence was agreed to by both the victims and the teenager's family. now the aclu is calling this unconstitutional and a violation of the first amendment. we are back with our fox news legal analyst lis wiehl and defense attorney and former prosecutor jona. thanks for speaking around. this judge sentenced this 17-year-old to 10 years mandatory church attendance as opposed to any sort of jail. what did you think of that? >> as a mom. as, you know, i'm very -- i think it's a creative judgment. i like the judgment. it will give the kid 10 years. both sides agree to it. give the kids 10 years church and maybe rehabilitate himself. i like the idea of it but let's talk about the -- >> what did you think at first
3:55 am
blush. >> i like it, too. it's very creative. this kid doesn't deserve to be thrown in prison and throw away the key that's why the judge came to have. this the aclu doesn't like it. it's interesting to remind the viewers that the victim's family thought that this would be okay. it was run by them. they stay violates church and state. >> here is a judge coming in and saying you must go to church why love the idea but that is a violation of the first amendment. >> lis is probably right. the key here is the families all agreed. if the victim and the defendant didn't agree then this wouldn't be happening. >> give them the option to violate the constitution? >> why not? isn't this sentence better than making him wear a sandwich board saying i killed somebody in the difference sort of shameful sentences that we have? those are out of the ordinary, too. the point is just because both sides agree to it doesn't mean that it doesn't violate the constitution. we can't have that kind of precedent. do i like this sentence? yes. is it unconstitutional?

yes. >> and i agree. you are probably right. it probably does violate. when everybody says it's okay and a judge puts his pleasing pleasing -- blessing on it, why not? >> both sides agree we can violate the constitution. >> this was accidental death. right? >> drunk driving. >> accidental death. he didn't mean to kill his friend. >> manslaughter and he was below, by the way the legal limit but because he was 17 years old it was counted -- >> five years from now if this kid says i'm done going to church, what will the judge do then? that's my own concern. >> does he get thrown in jail and throw away the key? it's. >> it's an interesting topic. we would love to hear what you say. >> who coordinated your outfits? >> great minds think alike, dave briggs. >> they all though the out off this of this. great to he sue guys. thanks for coming in and dressing like me. the department of homeland security stepping up communication by spending millions on new radios, there

overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. the current constitutional vacuum in egypt only resolved by checks and balances and fundamental freedoms, individual rights and rule of law consistent with egypt's international commitment. u.s. officials have also said president morsey's power grab came as a surprise so close to him helping broker peace in gaza. according to a reuters wire that just crossed, this is a quote. egypt's highest judicial authority says president morsey's decree is unprecedented attack on judicial independence. now we wait and see what happens next. >> who was that statement from. >> that's from egypt's highest judicial authority. >> who is now useless. >> actually, egypt, the supreme basically the equivalent of the supreme court in egypt can challenge his decree but basically the

4:15 am
benghazi continue with ambassador susan rice. speaking out in defense of her initial comments where she blamed the video and protest errors for the attack on our consulate. also director of national intelligence james clapper says he is the one who took out the al qaeda reference in those talking points after originally saying he had no idea who did it. so where does all this confusion leave us regarding the state department? will clapper take the fall to protect susan rice? >> joining us now fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. good morning, catherine. >> good morning. >> so now that james clapper -- i don't know if he he said he did it, but his office took responsibility. >> that's correct. >> for the talking points. is this now case closed? that answers it? >> well, i think it's important to look at the timing of the last 10 days. we had these closed classified hearings on capitol hill where james clapper is the manager who oversees the 16 intelligence agencies told the committees that he had had no idea who made the changes to these talking points he was
4:16 am
quite definite. then four days later his office put out a statement saying we, in fact, were the ones who made these changes that seemed to minimize the role of terrorism. and then almost on cue, ambassador rice comes out to the stakeout at the u.n. and clearly has some prepared remarks about the situation and then all of this ostensibly got are buried on a holiday weekend when most people are not paying attention to the media i don't think that's the end of it because james clapper is going to have to satisfactory the heads of those intelligence committees that what he told them in sworn testimony on the hill was, in fact, what he knew at the time. he have to explain what is ultimately a complete reversal on his position. >> does this further complicate for susan rice that some have leveled the argument, of course, that she is simply a puppet then. been handed talking points and goes out there and makes thee comments. would we want a potential secretary of state to be
4:17 am
thoughtful, interrogative. >> you have hit the nail on the head. what we have heard from lawmakers on capitol hill is that susan rice is someone who had access though this unclassified information so these talking points. but she also had access to classified information. and if she had had the will to dig a little deeper what would have been clear is that there was a good body of raw intelligence that led people in the intelligence community to conclude that it was a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours. for example we know that there were realtime emails saying that this group ansar al sharia had claimed responsibility. that's important because that claim could only have come from someone who was there on the ground. not from a group after the fact. so that's an important data point. she would have had access to that she is going to have to reconcile why she just seemed to go with unclassified talking points when she had so much information that she could actually access. >> it's not clear if she has
4:18 am
the votes in the senate to be confirmed as secretary of state. even with democrats. this statement doesn't help her from the dni themselves. the intelligence community assessed from the very beginning that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. that is from the dni to cbs news. so, she is going to have a difficult confirmation if, in fact, she is named. but where do the hearings go from here? where when does hillary clinton step up and shed light on what happened? >> that's an excellent question. and when you look ahead to the next two weeks, what we anticipate is that the secretary of state will testify most likely in an open hearing within about the next 10 days this goes to the other issue that's unresolved department and the death of ambassador stevens and those other three americans. fox was first to report on a classified cable that was done in august less than a month before the attack which is really the smoking gun warning there was an emergency meeting
4:19 am
and what they relayed to headquarters and hillary clinton's office in washington is that that consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack and that these islamist groups were everywhere and that they needed more help. this group in effect predicts the very way they are going to die less than a month later there was no additional security that was added. in fact, a special team that was on the ground was withdrawn from benghazi. so the question for secretary of state clinton is going to be weather this was a decision that was driven by a lack of assets or money, whether it was just bureaucratic inertia or whether this decision was politically driven because the administration wanted to have this light footprint on the ground, this reliance on the libyans to show that, in fact, the arab spring had been a success in libya, when, in fact, the intelligence on the ground showed something quite different. >> oh, boy. catherine herridge, you obviously have been in the forefront of all sorts of great reporting on this. thanks so much with joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> coming up on the show. is he getting paid a lot of money to legally change his

4:33 am
away before it gets taken. >> alisyn: that wasn't a punch line. that was actually a provocative statement the comedian tim al ledge was talking about give your money to charity before the government can take it today there is an op. ed by pete dupont in the "wall street journal" talking about or maybe this week talking about how he fears that america, given the most recent election, is becoming more like europe. he becomes the europeization of america. he has all sorts of examples of why he thinks we are headed in that direction. >> he says those who worry about the europeanization of america and social decline are right to be unsettled. this is not just a writer though, this is a former governor, former u.s. congressman. former presidential candidate. a guy who knows what he is talking about worried about all the money that is being taken away from you and is soon to be much worse in the next four years. >> here is split screen to give you understanding of some of the numbers here. some signs that the u.s. may be coming more like europe. unemployment levels -- employment levels.

4:35 am
>> right kardashians with ruining it for everybody. >> declining in that short period of time is frightening. the added element we didn't talk about is the fiscal cliff if that comes that's more than $650 billion in tax increases combined with spending cuts that would send us back into a recession. many fear we would become europe in a matter of speaking. >> here is the interesting part, i think, pete dupont concludes that he says that this recent election proves that the country has become more liberal. that's how he interprets what happened in the most recent election. we would love to hear from you if that's your take away from it. he thinks we are headed in the path of europe and become more liberal. there are many other explanations we have heard since election night. maybe people just the incouple bent always holds an advantage. maybe people don't like change. who knows. but that's his theory is that the country has just become more liberal. >> let us know what you think. email address or find us on twitter

4:54 am
of keeping marijuana away from our children in a regulated and controlled market. under the policies of prohibition, kids can gain access, dealers do not ask for i.d. they do not ask for proof of your age. all they want to see is the money. and so we'll have a reduced number of access points for our children. >> bishop ron allen what do you think of the notion that this could prevent children from getting their hands on marijuana? >> neil franklin is so misguided and so is lee. he is an unethical contradictive group of drug legalizers who at one time neil franklin took an oath to uphold the laws and enforce the laws of the state of california. now you guys are saying to different states and especially the state of california, it's okay to break federal law.

that's a total contradiction. and you guys are not. >> we're not saying it's okay. >> law enforcement. there is no way possible that you can think that by legalizing marijuana will decrease the use. you know neil franklin if you decrease the harm perception of any drug, it will go up. it will be used more. and if you make it more available, it's going to go up. we see that right now. we have 80% increase among our youth. >> more available under prohibition. i have listened to you. it's already more available under prohibition because we have drug dealers on just about every corner. time to get oit off the corners and regulated stores and markets. our organization does not promote the use of any drug. including those that are legal. >> neil, you are promoting. you are promoting. we already have illegal drugs. we have two drugs that are

5:05 am
attempting to breach the border there. conor powell with the latest on the cease-fire still holding strong, connor? >> three days into this cease-fire agreement and it is still holding. it appears we are moving further and awrtd away from the brink of war. life is beginning to return to normal in gaza and in israel. perhaps the most encouraging sign right now is that the heavy equipment in the troops that were massing on the border were move into gaza. there was a ground have been. those heavy equipment and troops are being pulled back from the border. things like bulldozers and armored personnel carriers and tanks they have begun to be pulled back. some of the 40,000 or so israeli tourists called up are being released and sent back to their normal civilian lives. this is a part of moving away from the brink of war. another encouraging sign schools are we opening in both israel and in gaza. yesterday israeli children in southern israel they went back
5:06 am
to school with the removal of the threat of bombs and rockets, life is getting back to normal in southern israel. today gaza. palestinian children there they return to school as well. markets are beginning to reopen. now over the next coming days and weeks, there are still big chalsz for this cease-fire agreement. obviously yesterday one of the big challenges was the fact that there was a violation, according to both israeli and hamas leaders of the cease-fire agreement. but with the shooting of one palestinian and 19 others injured. neither side really took any steps to ramp up the inflammatory comment that we normally see here with this type of incident. both sides are trying to keep cooler heads to prevail right now, guys. >> conor powell three days in saying the peace treaty holding strong. >> someone who knows all about the middle east and israel he has visited many times governor mike huckabee he joins us from florida.

5:08 am
be holding. here is what liz cheney has to say about the situation. we will have you react to that. here is this. >> it's important to remind people that the israelis withdrew from gaza unilaterally, handed that territory over to the palestinians, so, you know, when you hear people saying well the problem here is the israelis aren't willing to give up land for peace. what we're skiing on the screen unfolds tells you the palestinian does not want. hamas does not want to live in peace. they have no concerns at all about killing israeli civilians or putting their own missile launchers in places where their own civilians will be killed. and this president and this administration's policy of really withdrawing from the world. retreating from the region. have put iran in a position where they, tskt, feel emboldened. >> has the president's policies anything to do with the situation in the middle east? >> i don't think you can blame this one on the president so much as you just blame it on the fact that there is ongoing
5:09 am
hostility and there always is going to be between the arab nations and in this case the palestinians and the israelis. you have got to understand there are people who don't think israel should exist. palestinians don't acknowledge the existence of israel. you can't make peace with people who don't think you audited to be alive. the naivete. remind ourselves hamas is a terrorist organization. that's not my definition but that's the definition of even our own government. that means they are criminals. hamas is criminal enterprise. you don't see the police going out into the streets trying to say let's negotiate with the criminals and just be all august happen and nice to each other. you deal with criminals by thught people away. you have deal with hamas and try to put them away. it's knive to think they will change their ways. >> let's talk about the turbulence at home involving the situation in benghazi.
5:10 am
congressman had a suggestion we would like to know if you think that this is possible saying, basically, that the president has said the buck stops with him so maybe he should be the one testifying. let's listen to what he says. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> instead of taking up for susan rice, here is a deal i will make with the president. you come in her place and testify before congress and answer our questions. >> governor, never going to happen. >> no. it's not going to happen. but i think congressman gowdy who is one of my favorites because he is so plain spokane spoken and clear. the president tried defend susan rice. if he doesn't want to own up about benghazi then come himself. if he says the buck stops with him they can come after me. okay then go to congress and tell us what happened. somebody is not telling us the truth from this administration and it's high time we found
5:11 am
out what really did happen and why it happened and who covered it up. >> is susan rice now scot-free? we heard from james clapper's office basically looked at the revised it. they took out the words al qaeda in its place and put islamic extremist. is susan rice now free and clear here and does james clapper and his office need to be held accountable. >>? >> i don't think anybody is free and clear because the story keeps changing. this is the most evolving story. i think, you know, since the episodes of dallas and who shot j.r. we don't know. the reason we don't know is because they tell us a different story every week. i think it's like throwing spatting strands against the wall hoping something sticks. at the keep throwing a story out there hoping we believe one of them the more stories you we've weave the less believable they become. my father always said if you tell the truth you don't have to remember what you said
5:12 am
yesterday. that simple common sense answer somebody maybe ought to share that with the white house and the people in the state department and the director of national intelligence. >> governor, stick around. up next he was convicted of driving drunk and killing his friend instead of going to jail, a judge sentenced this young man to church for 10 years. does the punishment fit the crime? we'll ask the governor next. >> then kids, please don't try this at the mall. wisconsin teenager making a giant splash from the second floor of a shopping center. this is not a good idea. >> not bad form though, really.

sentenced to go to atheist meeting for the next 10 years or to sun worship society. the point is that's really not the domain of the criminal justice system. again, i don't think there is anything wrong with the boy going to church. the judge can recommend it. to order it as a part of the sentence that may cross the line. i hate to admit it and i may get nasty letters. >> i agree. >> at some point you can't have the government dick take the what people believe and how they worship? >> you have the families who agree with the aclu says no what sort of a precedent does it if someone thinks they can drive drunk the only punishment the slap on the wrist i'm going to get is having to go to church every sunday? >> i mean if the judge can sentence to you go to church, can he sentence to you tithe, he can sentence to you memorize a certain number of bible verses a week. and you know ultimately i come to from the christian perspective that says going to church tithing, reading the
5:18 am
bible, ought to be something that we do out of our conscience, not because it's a criminal conviction and an order by the judge. >> also not clear how in the world that would be enforced but that's another segment. what's coming up on the show tonight, governor. >> we got a great show. johnny eric. quad plea jik since 17. her remarkable story is stunning. scott mcintyre here the finalist on "american idol" who is just amazing. a powerful story of how he and his father after years of alienation came back together and restored their relationship it is a very powerful thanksgiving weekend show and folks will enjoy and i think be inspired by it. >> governor i have got to ask you where you go. do you always travel with a stack of books behind you or are you at a book signing. >> if no one buys them i have them behind me that and a it's shameless promotion. of course it is. >> great thanksgiving book.

5:24 am
business network. is he making a special appearance on fox news saturday. >> good to be here. >> defines as 40 hours a week or more. what's happening at the community college how are they skirting this. >> this particular college are moving 200 adjunct faculty members and 200. >> part time you mean. >> moving them down to 25 hours a week, that's it. if you work more than 30 hours you are a full-time employee and therefore you have to -- your employer must provide healthcare to you under obama care. so there is a shift to part time work. and the restaurant industry, now in college and other industries across the country? is that because the workweek was redefined. we always knew a workweek as 40 hours. >> yes, in many respects that is true. under obama care, you work more than third hours in a week, you are full-time. and if a company has 50 or more full-time employees, they must provide what the law
5:25 am
defines as adequate coverage. but nobody knows what is adequate coverage. therefore, you have got to take precautions because what is adequate coverage? how expensive is it going to be? you simply don't know. so you avoid the problem by shifting people to fewer hours. which is is a real problem for those people who won't get more hours. >> with this shaky economy, stewart, something you follow very closely in the stock market and other sectors of business, can we afford this right now? when you look at small businesses having to dial back to avoid more costs the overall economy handle this right now. >> you put your finger on the precise problem. we went into this healthcare reform, the objective was surely to lower the cost of healthcare. because it's out of control. obama care does not lower the cost of health insurance. it simply does not. it actually raises it. and what this does, obama care when it comes to the full force january 1st, 2014, when it hits fully it, will raise
5:26 am
the cost of doing business for countless businesses and industries across the country. to to answer your question, in my opinion we cannot afford it. >> who are already facing massive regulations on top of now this added. >> and taxes. >> pennsylvania community cleaning says they will save about $6 million with this move, if you move your employees down. >> what this particular college is doing is shortening the hours of a lot of employees. that saves them money and they're already squeezed on costs. and it removes the legal responsibility of providing health care come january the 1st, 2014. >> saves you on two fronts. >> saves these people on two fronts. $6 million is their estimate of the savings. not good news anybody who wants to work more hours this is not good news. anybody who wants a full-time job and wants to keep the full-time job and not make it
5:27 am
part time. obama care is bad news across the board. >> people forget that these tax increases can be passed off by colleges and big businesses alike. this another case where this happens. stu varney thanks for beingy this morning. >> my flesh. >> 9:20 eastern time on the fox business network. >> stu, thanks so much. >> next up on the run down, big labor boycott at wal-mart on black friday. did the union protesters actually have the opposite effect on wal-mart? we have the details straight ahead? >> we see it year after year. people making a mad dash stopping at nothing to get the black friday bargains. are the shoppers normal or nuts? we'll have dr. keith ablow about that in this psychosis that takes over.

5:32 am
>> i don't mind. i think it's shapely. i don't mind seeing the yoga pants. >> move on to georgia. that's where a wal-mart. people pushed, shoved, they even bit one another trying to get their hands on sale items. >> that's understandable. cops arresting this woman at a wal-mart in florida. police say she tried to cut the long checkout lines when she was confronted she refused to get to the back of the line, started throwing her merchandise,cops down. wow, was the tackle necessary? she don't have merchandise. let's hope things aren't quite as chaotic today for mom and pop shops in america. >> that's right. today is small business saturday. let's go to wdas kerry, local toy and gift shop in kansas city, missouri. it got a little ugly in oberland park kansas not far from where you are little calmer on small business saturday? >> oh, that ugliness is over. you know we have a little outline i bet you haven't had

a outline join you live with the puppet tri here. one of the things you can find in some of these small businesses. not only you can come in and find unique gifts and toys but you can also get your hands on them and play with them. jim ward is with toy and science in kansas city with us. tell us how much does small business saturday mean to a business like yours? >> it has been so helpful and so thankful to american express. i would say for small business saturday, it doubled the volume of our business. >> you have had a couple of tough years in the economy so this christmas season really means something to you. >> it's really important to us. it's just become harder and harder to make a small business work. >> why are small businesses still such a huge part of americana. what services do you offer that you can't get in big box store. >> people love personal touch. if you tell us you have a 2-year-old boy that is very active or 4-year-old girl that's girlie, we can take you to the right gift. a lot of grandparents wouldn't know what to get or even
5:34 am
parents. and you know we can show you the latest item. and gift wrap it for you. and help you to your car if you like. >> that's great. thanks so much for joining us this morning. jim and for all the puppets and the fun this morning that we have been having all morning long. i'm kerry we're fox 4 news. back to you. >> we need to get an outline as a -- owl on a co-host on the show. >> is it stuffed or real? >> i don't care. >> what's the difference? >> i don't have any standards for owls whether it's stuffed or not. >> can ask the who, what, why when and how? >> thanks, carrie. >> why do emotions run so high on black friday? why? >> joining us is fox news contributor and psychiatrist dr. keith ablow who is here. he handles and figures out and cuts through the mess whether you are normal or nuts. doctor, nice to is he you this morning. >> hey, good to see you. so all of this hysteria. we see the stampedes, 12.95. >> yoga pants at victoria
5:35 am
secrets causes people to go crazy and run out there. normal or nuts? >> unfortunately, it's normal. because the combination of rarity and opportunity unleashes something in human beings that result in this stampede mentality. after all a pair of yoga pants if it were the fact that you were just at the street corner would you like to buy this at half price you couldn't get a line to were fovment the fact that we put out the word, it's rare, in short supply the opportunity is you make a little money and spend less. that touches something in the human party. >> you also must touch something in the human brain, dr. ablow. people get out of their beds at midnight and they are willing to go and stand in cold lines for hours at a time. they even resort to violence. i mean. is this an addiction? >> well, what it is it is a perfect storm because we consumers, we american
5:36 am
consumers consumers around the world the reason the economy works is people really want these things. it's become perhaps too much a substitute for real identity if you will. people really need these things of the. and when you then combine that with the fact that these are in shorter supply. not everybody can have them. and that you are going to get money emotional and intellectually perfect storm it unleashes these ties. people standing in line for the iphone. that wasn't even about the fact it was less money. simply not everyone can have one. competition is so deep in the american and worldwide soul that it unleashes at this moment. on a black friday. the name doesn't help either. >> do the stores in this case have any responsibility to try to calm this situation down and do something differently? i know a lot are trying to spread out the deals. what can be done i think you could spread this out more
5:37 am
than one shopping day. stage this so that only a certain number of people are allowed in the store at a certain time. you could time it the way that you used to time, you know, school, you know, classes if you had more than one session in your school. so the bottom line is yes, they could. but, you know, i think there is also something about this that can't be well controlled and that's simply. this that if if a particular thing is captured, the american imagination, this day, that we're all going to be become super consumers. it's tough to stem really the momentum of that kind of belief system. >> you could actually have workers walking down the line before they open and say what are you planning on buying and give they have vouchers so they know they have those items and not tackle. >> some people were selling those vouchers were profit on fry day. >> scalping the vouchers. >> can't win. amazing thing. of course there is competition between retailers. so have you competition upon competition and it's an exponential kind of mushroom
5:38 am
clowted. >> that's where i take it. >> too much yoga pants. >> you can never have too many go go pants. >> thank you dr. ablow on that. here are the headlines. despite their best efforts black friday protesters did not seem to hurt wal-mart's sales. [chanting] around a thousand protests were expected around the country. according to a statement released by wal-mart only 26 protests actually took place and most of the participants were not even wal-mart employees. wal-mart says this was the retailer's best black friday ever. wal-mart estimates it sold more than 1.8 million towels. 1.3 million televisions. 1.3 million dolls. and 250,000 bicycles. okay. meanwhile, long island hurricane sandy victims went weeks without power and some of whom are still in the dark

5:46 am
nice to sigh. morsey has said i want to be president of all egypt. every egyptian. he said i simply did this power grab or didn't put in those words, i simply did these decrees because there are all members of the mubarak regime the guys you threw out that are still lurking that i'm trying to protect you from. do you buy that. >> i think what president morse is i was really say something hey, democracy is great. -- each mubarak felt obliged to pay deference to the judiciary. you have to go to saddam hussein to find somebody who has seized so much power. basically morsi says nothing matters except what i say matters. it's a terrible embarrassment to the obama administration after all the gush this week. it's curious because we did doo this to ourselves all the
5:47 am
time. morsi was engaging hate speech to israel all during the gaza campaign. able to broker a cease-fire because hamas was hurting really, really badly. and suddenly our president and his -- elevated this guy to the status of global statesman and morsi turns around beings back hands him and says well that's enough democracy. >> he saw his name in the top of the headlines in newspapers around the world for the guy who managed to broker this peace agreement between israel and hamas and here he goes a power grab. now, that's all in the past. so now how do we handle egypt and president morsi going forward? after all, we give them billions of dollars every year in financial aid to be a linchpin of peace in that region. what do we do? >> it's tough. after you have engaged in this orgy of gushing how great a guy morsi is. we weren't in a position to
5:48 am
keep mubarak in power. we are not in a position to remove mercy is i. we do have leverage because of our direct aid. because of our voice in the international monetary fund, which is -- whose aid is very important to egypt's development. and morsi's fundamental problem is a very weak, anemic, recessive egyptian economy. so hit him where it hurts if necessary. right now it is necessary. certainly for the moment. until he acknowledges that the courts have their power. until he accepts coptic christians have to have a voice in writing the new constitution which is what this is all about, the newer party, the muslim brotherhood want sharia brotherhood behind the constitution. fine, can you do what you want, but we are not going to fund you while you are doing it a problem here is simply that the democracy as we know in our own system is messy. isit requires patience it
5:49 am
requires begrudging compromise. the only tradition is the tradition of the strong man. when things become very frustrating as is you seen in iraq with neuroly al maliki. as is you see with morsi in egypt. become dictatorial. >> there he is colonel ralph peters. great insight. do you have bad knees? if so you may want to stay away from soda. why it could be making them worse. and want to be a master chef? how about a world class golfer? no problem. our next guest says he can teach you to be a master at anything in just six months. there he is he will be joining us in just moments. 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose,

is that the israeli troop and mobilization of equipment on the gaza-israeli border now seems to be moving in the opposite direction, bulldozers, tanks, armored personnel carrierses that would have been used for a ground invasion, ner being moved away from the gaza-israeli borders and so, too, are the troops. and 40,000 israeli reservists are being released and sent back to normal civilian life. life is beginning to return to normal in israel and gaza and another step, school children in both southern israel and gaza went back to school and southern israel the school children head back yesterday and in gaza, the palestinian children, they went back to school today. so, life is becoming more and more normal here and there's a lot of fear and tension about the future, but for now, the cease-fire is holding, it was tested yesterday after a shooting along the border in which left one palestinian man
6:07 am
dead, and 19 others injured, but both sides took steps to tamper down the inflammatory language and beginning to work towards a more sustainable peace in the next few days and weeks. egypt will host from hamas to work on a concrete foundation for the cease-fire and the top priority what is meant by the easing of restrictions in the blockade, and both sides are working with the egyptian and american government to try to force some sort of concrete agreement going forward, guys. >> dave: that's connor powell live for us. >> clayton: thanks, connor, and let's go to peter doocy, violent protests sparked up in egypt in response to president mohammed morsi and his late power grab this week. >> good morning, the supreme court judicial council in egypt says that president
6:08 am
morsi's power grab is unprecedented attack on judicial-- and calling on him t reverse it and the move to make decisions above the law and free he from judicial review until the parliament is ele surprising. and the president called president morsi to thank him for effort and reaffirm the close partnership between the united states and egypt. last night the state department issued a statement expressing reservations about what he's doing and made clear in their view the actions he's taking conflict with the idea that fueled the arab spring a year ago. the state department says one of the aspirations of the revolution was to ensure that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution, and the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects
6:09 am
fundamental freedoms and rule of law consistent with egypt's international commitments. and el baradei is more blunt and twitter, morsi usurped all parents and' pointed himself egypt's new garo, a major blow that could have dire consequences. only a little more than five months since morsi became egypt's first democratically elected president and hands out leaflets saying that the protests are legitimate. back to you. >> clayton: peter doocy, let's waste no time michelle malcolm from colorado a fox news contributor. perspective on this, michelle. president morsi saying i want to be president of all egyptians and really the only reason i did any of these sort of decrease was to keep out the former mubarak regime.
6:10 am
do you buy that, number one, and how do you think the obama administration should handle him now? >> yeah, well, i certainly don't buy it and my opinion matters a lot less than the people in egypt who are now saying, we told you so. and this was long telegraphed that these kind of power grabs are exactly what you could expect from the front man for the muslim brotherhood. and the obama administration is making all of the expected obligatory gestures of finger wagging at morsi, but they backed this administration and their followers, basically admonished anyone who raised concerns about morsi's proclivities of being a quote, unquote, islamof ochlislamofobe. >> and they can hardly be
6:11 am
accused of islam-phobia warning about the encroachment of power. and the biggest canary in the coal mine has been the press because its dissidents on tv, satellite channels and in social media who have been talking about the crackdown on criticism of any kind. i mean, even the most moderate of criticism of the morsi administration. it's a sad situation, but perfectly expected. >> on the flip side was the praise that the obama administration heaped on egypt and they're handling their government, in particular, susan rice just the other day talked glowingly about morsi and what he did there and brokering this peace agreement. charles krauthammer suggesting what happened is heaped-- >> what a lot of people see are the pats on the back not just by the obama administration, but by morsi
6:12 am
himself, patting himself on the back and basically flipping the bird to people who believed in democracy and freedom in egypt. as for susan rice, one might give her the benefit of the doubt and call it naivete, but for the longest time she and her ilk in government service and state department have been jihad coddlers. >> do you think it's time to withdraw or delay the massive amounts of money that we give to egypt? >> well, yeah, i've always questioned the billions of dollars that we've spent there and certainly, it isn't yielding the rainbows and uncorner results that we were promised. >> do we have a reid war in the making. colorado and washington state

6:17 am
malcolm. how excited are you about the legalization of pot in your state? >> there's already a medical marijuana shop on every corner. i've long had libertarian tendencies on a lot of issues, and seeing the overzealousness enforcement of drug laws in the country, more harm than good. all that said i'm concerned about the slippery slope, as we all should be, but i think from a political point of view, it is a little bit amusing to see the feds now in this position, this quandary that the doj is in of having to negotiate with the states, you know, fairly liberal states on how to enforce or rather, not enforce these laws and trump the will of the people. the thing is the states voted for this, this is what they've determined and a lot of the backing here came from, believe it or not, police chief and law enforcement.
6:18 am
>> and do you see the double standard here, guys. it's interesting within oun hand the department of justice saying we're the not going to pay attention to what you did down there in arizona in relation to the immigration law, you forced it, but you did it, we're not going to enforce it, and now we may have to step in and enforce something? >> yes, that's exactly the depolitical point and ideological point because you've got the collective federalism on the part of many people and it does show up as hipocracy, certainly of a lot of the leftists who champion their ballot measures, whether it's gay marriage or legalization of marijuana or even much, you know, harder drugs, which is another huge concern. but then want the feds to get involved if it has to do with things that they disagree with, tea party causes, limited government. taxes, collective bargaining, voter i.d., election fraud, and of course, immigration

6:25 am
hospital, not a catholic university, not a catholic church, they have to do it, does hobby lobby stand a chance? >> i think they do. here is why, in the 10th circuit where it's located in colorado, actually, the same circuit court system as oklahoma, a judge has done the the operate sit with a privately owned business, a regularly owned company not religious organization or nonprofit company. what's tough for some of the judges, it's new. the federal government has never done this type of attack on the freedom of religious and restoration act by president clinton, and makes a high bar and strict scrutiny and set a law as of now, press of citizen awe nighted and said that the private corporations and companies have first amendment rights with free speech. so you would any, well, the other rights, like freedom of religion, why wouldn't that apply as well. three out of four judges of 40
6:26 am
cases that are active say this is unconstitutional and one judge denied a preliminary injunction and another who tossed out the case are moving now toward the circuit court and this is a major discussion point, as you said, alisyn with the specific companies, and we haven't gotten to the nonexempted organization cases yet because they don't have to comply until this coming august and these had started complying months ago. >> can you break it down for sort of dummies for the people who don't have legal degrees and break it down for us, is this about whether or not universal health care and this federal law trumped first amendment rights or whatever first amendment rights trumped the federal government's obamacare? >> and what it's about, it's about does, did the three exercise religions as the constitutional rights of individuals, private businesses, owners of these companies, the ceo's, the people who write the mission
6:27 am
statement and founded the company, the majority shareholders, do those rights are they more important than what the federal government wants to give for free to your employees? >> and there's some discussion, is it the employees who have the rights and is it the owners? there's never been a found in the constitution as broad as the courts interpreted, cueses a constitutional right to work at hobby lobby. so all the 13,000 employees, which by the way, hobby lobby if they don't win this, would be fined $100 per employee a day. so 1.3 million dollars a day for not providing the morning after pill for free and not providing the week after pill for free. you don't have a right to work there and employees are not complaining and that's where you see the tensions the first amendments, rights we have as religious people, as americans, have been the most important rights and the freedom of religion is the first right there. if the court is going to apply free speech rights and a more controversial world of politics where corporations can spend money as speech and

>> well, no escaping it, in just over a month the nation faces a so-called fiscal cliff. that's those 500 billion dollars in tax hikes and spending cuts set to take effect in january unless congress can reach a deal and get something done. the big question remains, should republicans agree to raise taxes on the wealthy to done? let's ask steven moore, editorial board, good morning to you, steven. >> hi, good morning. >> john boehner is clear, he does not want to raise rates, he wants to give in if at all on deductions and write-offs saying they can essentially write off the same amount for the treasury, what should republicans do here? >> it's an interesting dilemma the republicans find themselves in, dave. most of them, as you know,
6:45 am
have taken this no tax pledge, which is the pledge to voters that they won't raise taxes on anybody, and so, now president obama is saying we're going to raise the taxes on the rich and he won't sign any bill that doesn't have a tax increase on the rich, so, the two parties are still at logger heads. i personally think given the still fragility of this economic recovery, the economy still isn't sputtering on one cylinder now, and high unemployment. it doesn't make sense to me to raise taxes on businesses or investors. that's where we stand right now. i don't see an agreement anytime really soon because the two sides are still so far apart. >> i'm a betting man, steven, would you imagine that the house republicans would give on raising rates for the wealthy? they certainly have to acknowledge that the tax-- the bush tax cuts for those making less than 250 have to be extended, that has to happen. >> that's right, that's right. >> dave: what about the top 2%? what about happen in your best guest?
6:46 am
>> what john boehner said, and i interviewed mitch mcconnell the house minority leader in the senate on this and basically their position right now is we will agree he to raise some revenues, we'll do some closing of the loopholes in the tax system, but we're not going to agree to raising tax rates because we think it hurts the economy, it hurts business and it increases unemployment at a time when the economy is still sort of flat on its back, that's why these two sides are still pretty far apart because as you know, last week the president said i will not sign any bill that extends these tax rate reductions for another year for the rich. right now they're gridlocked, that's all there is to it. this is a classic stalemate between the two parties, i think they will probably reach an agreement, but i wouldn't be surprised if that didn't happen until the day before christmas. >> dave: i'm guessing one year extension. and let's hold on to the fact that the democrats say no, we need to raise rights not
6:47 am
eliminate deductions and write-offs. why stick to that essentially the same type of money. why would they stay there, because of economics or politics? >> it's politics. you asked the right question. if it's going to raise the same amount of money, what difference does it make. two things, the democrats want to be punitive to the rich because they feel the income gap and second, this is kind of a cynical thing to say, but i believe it's a motivation here, a lot of democrats want to kind of erase anything that george w. bush did. so, they want to kind of erase this from the whole playing field. it's kind of a-- it's an act of symbolism and more than economics and i think they're playing with danger here, investment is low right now. you know the statistics and i said it before on your show. two out of every three people are going to pay the higher tax rates if we raise the rates, dave. those are small business men and women, the people who employ american workers.

6:52 am
friends" on this saturday morning. the obama administration has been under the microscope for its response to the attack in benghazi and four americans killed in that attack and under scrutiny, israel and hamas has come to a cease-fire agreement and whether the policies are to blame in the first place. >> alisyn: dana, thank you for being here. >> happy to be here. happy thanksgiving weekend. >> let's talk about what morsi had done, a naked power grab where i'm in power here and nothing the judiciary says or does could overrule any of thigh decisions. some people suggested he was emboldened perhaps by supportive words from washington or is there nothing that washington is doing that could affect what's going on in the middle east? >> well, i think three parts. one, you cannot blame middle east peace problems on any one president because those problems-- >> an awful long time. >> and it's happening.
6:53 am
and morsi, the new egyptian, he, i think, felt early on that power was seductive. what he did yesterday was in completely flies in the face of what the people of egypt had fought for in the arab spring which is they wanted to have more say in their government. it is difficult and you saw this in iraq, as it was trying to build after the war and you had maliki there. and when you're in your democracy and explaining it's not fun when the newspapers criticize them, let it go. talk to them. might be a different ato try to do things. when the arab spring happened, how much is america willing to do, with our allies in the west and n.a.t.o., to put forward to help them try to build a democracy. i do think we fell short on that or didn't advertise much of what they did and the
6:54 am
efforts fell apart. >> dave: and you can't blame the obama administration for tension between hamas and israel, but charles krauthammer did discussion that the praise that president obama heaped on president morsi may have led to what we saw, that power grab. initially hillary clinton was very complimentary of what morsi and his government did in the cease-fire and susan rice not piled on, but jumped on and complimentary of morsi and should they have been so quick to heap praise on a man we really know nothing about. >> well, perhaps morsi was planning to do something like this or wanted to do something like this all along and that was his target of opportunity, wow i've had my name in the spotlight and i've been seen as a person who helped solve this and i'm now the savior, i think it's hard to imagine that just those words from the past 28 hours or 48 hours, really made that big a difference, but the things are just happening at such a hair trigger over there, that maybe, maybe charles is right.
6:55 am
>> and charles is usually right, you know, i have a huge crush on him and far be it from me to say that charles krauthammer is wrong. >> clayton: speaking of a hair trigger, the fiscal cliff, and steven moore putting out questions, should they cave on the bush tax cut or allow the rates to go up or filling the loopholes to drive revenue. you know the back and forth workings of washington so well. what's going on behind the scenes right now? are the republicans going to cave on that issue? >> well, i know one thing for sure and i'm really glad that i'm not working in washington anymore, because once again, i think that this will go all the way up until maybe the day before christmas eve and finally figure something out. what's sad about this situation is that last february john boehner the speaker of the house at the time sent the letter to the president and said, this fiscal cliff is going to become a huge problem for the economy. beam are going to be nervous to invest, you see that in the
6:56 am
wall street journal this morning, investment dropping oflt let's try to get this done before the political season gets well underway. president obama says thank you very much, got an election to do and afterwards and now we're coming up against a deadline. higher taxes leads to less productive and hurts job. you know who else thought that, president obama. in the lame duck of december, 2010, those were his act words in the rose garden why we need today extend the bush tax cuts. >> alisyn: stick around for a minute because 2016 is right around the corner and is jeb bush really considering a run for president? we're going to-- >> what's so funny? >> and we'll ask in two minutes, stick around.
